Lady Gaga at the CFDA Awards: She Showed Her Nipples, Wore a Studded Thong and Once Called Anna Wintour a Bitch Via Text

Lady Gaga received the Fashion Icon award at last night's CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony, and her outfit didn't disappoint, at least from a visual shock value perspective. She wore a custom Mugler outfit and 24-inch heel-less platforms. The long train on the Mugler proved to be removable, because she accepted her award on stage in a bodysuit with a spiked thong. The bustier was precariously placed, and she managed to flash some nipple on the purple carpet, which we highly doubt was accidental.

Lady Gaga received the Fashion Icon award at last night's CFDA Fashion Awards ceremony, and her outfit didn't disappoint, at least from a visual shock value perspective. She wore a custom Mugler outfit and 24-inch heel-less platforms. The long train on the Mugler proved to be removable, because she accepted her award on stage in a bodysuit with a spiked thong. The bustier was precariously placed, and she managed to flash some nipple on the purple carpet, which we highly doubt was accidental.

In her acceptance speech she told the audience, "I can't believe I'm allowed in here." She also recounted a story about receiving a text from an "Anna" who she thought was her friend/ Nicola Formichetti's assistant, Anna Trevelyan. The text was telling her that she won the Fashion Icon Award. She responded by saying, "Yes, bitch, we did it!" But it wasn't Trevelyan who texted her; it was Anna Wintour. The editrix's reply? "That's lovely."

Also lovely? Gaga's makeup. We are loving her soft eye makeup without the heavy cat eyes she's been sporting lately and a dewy face that's finally free of prosthetics. The Marilyn/Madonna red lips, beauty mark, and dark eyebrows look fantastic with her relatively bare face. And we're predicting that teal wig will show up in a lot of Gaga costumes this Halloween.

Gaga ended the night in her usual flamboyant and mostly naked way, by dancing in a sheer bodysuit, thong, and pasties at an after party. Michael Kors had an idea for how she could really shock next time, telling WWD, "Gray flannels and a camel coat. Now that would be shocking."
